Student cadet Brian Moreland (Timothy Hutton) leads his fellow military classmates -- including Alex (Sean Penn) and David (Tom Cruise) -- in an armed revolt to prevent authorities from turning their school into condominiums. But the young men soon discover that playing soldier has serious consequences. When the Army is called in to respond to the situation, the students find themselves in an all-too-real war in this Golden Globe-nominated drama.
